In his stead is CP Abutu Yaro. A statement signed by the Force public relations officer CP Frank Mba and made available to CrimeWorld magazine online said 5 other CPs were affected by the major reorganization. Mba said, “The posting of the new CP is in furtherance of efforts by the Police leadership towards strengthening security, tackling violent crimes and enhancing optimal coordination of policing operations within the State; adding, “CP Abutu Yaro, a fellow of the National Defence College and the immediate-past Commissioner of Police, Zamfara State Command, is an operationally-minded Cop. By this new development, Abutu Yaro takes over from CP Nasiru Mohammed who has been redeployed to Western Port Authority, Lagos.”
Continuing, CP Mba added, ‘In the same vein, Zamfara State Police Command now has a new Commissioner of Police. He is CP Hussaini Rabiu.
